Vintage-style Burlesque Cabaret to Open in Montreal This Fall

In Montreal’s notoriously raucous heyday, it was known as ‘Sin City of the North’. Here was an epicenter of entertainment and debauchery where gangsters, showgirls and jazzmen ran rampant; where champagne flowed like water and the clubs were “noisy, sexy and had plenty of bounce”. In the 1940s, there were over 30 cabarets in Montreal.

At Montreal’s newest premiere show bar The Wiggle Room; vintage style will meet contemporary cabaret, and classic and signature cocktails will be served nightly to patrons enjoying neo-vaudeville variety, comedy, burlesque and live music. The Wiggle Room is intimate and rich in character and tone with deep purple walls, gold accents, warm exposed brick and vintage cocktail tables and chairs. It hearkens back to Montreal’s vibrant nightclubs of the 50s where bands were hot and the mood was loose and fun; when service and style were paramount.

The Wiggle Room will be presenting Signature Saturdays, with burlesque revues with the crème-de-la-crème of Montreal’s best burlesque and cabaret performers. Not to be missed are the signature cocktails named after each artist.

Thought-provoking gender-swapped version of “Blurred Lines” music video

There’s been a lot of controversy over the misogynistic video of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. It has been blasted by critics as being disparaging to women.

Luckily for us, an awesome parody has been created by Mod Carousel, a Seattle-based Boylesque troup, and features new tweaked lyrics, new male models and new props.

Mod Carousel addresses some of its own concerns with the original “Blurred Lines” video:

“It’s our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and does everyone a disservice,” the group explains. “We made this video specifically to show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.”

Here is the original unrated version of “Blurred Lines”, for comparison:
